He's Just Not That Into You

The ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ theory will need no introduction for ‘Sex and the City’ fans: the episode in question even inspired a book. The idea is that if a guy doesn’t call after a date, he’s just not that into you. Full stop. (Or, ‘period’, as this Baltimore-based comedy would put it.) Serial dater/stalker Gigi (a delightful Ginnifer Goodwin) has trouble accepting this, and turns to playboy Alex (Justin Long, bit of a stretch) for relationship advice. But could Alex be the one she’s looking for? Meanwhile a cast of surprisingly big names play out other scenarios: Ben Affleck doesn’t want to marry Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly’s husband cheats with Scarlett Johansson, etc.

Initially, observations about male and female behaviour are fairly accurate and entertaining. But this fails to quit while it’s ahead, running more than two hours and repeating its point in patronising fashion. But it remains a respectable self-help comedy for women too young to have worked the idea out for themselves.

It was not bad, it's quite funny. It's one of them movies where everyone in the theatre laughs our loud together. Good fun.

If you want a girly, this is it. I thought it was alright, quite funny, made me cry.. & A must see because it's the proof Jennifer's got a nose job :)

I'm a little nervous that the only people who thought it looked good were those who typed out their comments in 'text' language. Not that I would ordinarily stereotype but I'm guessing they're young and/or gullible. Guessing it's a bit of a no brainer then. Ah well, I'm taking the lady I work for so if it is rubbish, I'll take my blanket with me and have myself a nap! Thanks guys.

suburban middle class americans are having their usual relationship problems with mediocre acting with a huge star cast playing bit roles ,an overcrowded script and rather cheesy dialogues -a very immature thirty something version of sex and the city -i think the only person who was convincing was scarlett johansen -otherwise it was just dull and dubious and painted men and women as just indulging in sex or shopping as if there is nothing else in middle class suburbia to do -yes everyone was also imbibing huge amounts of alcohol too -rather jaded and not so clever as it was pretending to be or was meant to be

Look, ii am going to see this film tonight. and ii really cant wait. But ii dont get how people can say people are lien if its good. yano, some people like this type of film, and why not view the trailer before you went to see it. If you dont like it, thats your opinion. everyone has a different opinion. they aint liers though.

I enjoyed this film - despite what most people seem to have said on here... Some seem to have seen it as a one-sided story with the message that 'all men are assholes', but I thought some of the men were protrayed as sensitve and sweet, like in the jennifer aniston/ben affleck storyline

This Film is very poor , only girls will like this film (shallow minded ones) it has a beyonce style to it making out that all boys are arseholes and never make an effort with the girl which in some cases is correct but not all cases, went on forever VERY BORING , good cast but sadly not used to full potential i would not advise this movie there are no funny parts in it and is a very shallow look into the american dating world which is shallow, very very shallow WOULD NOT RECONMEND

Samantha

Really enjoyed the film!! We had read bad reviews but just ignored them and we were not disappointed. Very good storylines and cast.
